Scarcliffe Primary School

Strive to Shine

At Scarcliffe Primary School we really value our pupil's views.  One way in which we gather their views and ideas is by having a school council.  The president and vice president were voted for by the pupils a democratic voting system.  They then advertised the roles that were available in school and interviews took place to get the right people for each role.


Meet our School Councillors:

Democratic Vote:

In order to choose our School Council President and Vice President, we held and election in school.  All candidates had a week to put a campaign together and delivered speeches to the rest of the children in a special assembly.  

After counting the votes we found out that Lois and Harry were chosen for the roles.  

Following the vote, it was time to advertise for the roles we needed filling.  

Lois and Harry then interviewed the candidates based on their application forms and appointed the new school council.

School Charity:

In recent years we set ourselves the target to raise lots of money for charities.  Amazingly, we managed to raise a staggering £1214.69 for Ashgate Hospice and over £1000 for Macmillan Cancer Support!  Well done to the children who organised the events and the school community for their support.  


Children in Need:

 Soon we will be taking part in Children in Need day.  Leila and Joshua will have the job to make the day fun and memorable while making money for the charity. 


Progress made this year:

Lois and Harry - During the last term, the president and vice president have picked the school council, set up dress down Friday and we have almost got the tuck shop up and running.


Stanley and Charlotte - Since our first meeting we have done multiple jobs such as appointed librarians, thought of some books for school and organising librarian meetings.  Soon, we will have much more done thank you from reading councilors.


Morgan and Jasmine - We are Ivengers and we have , this year, met the police crime commissioner of Derbyshire, also we have had meetings on what missions were doing.


Leah and James - We have been busy so far organising Superstar Student rewards and the dates for them.


Callum and Abi - So far this year the activities councillors have interviewed and observed the new playleaders and are currently on the last step to run them.
